Stanley Gibbon, husband, father, grandfather, uncle, cousin and friend went to be with the Lord on April 27, 2013. He was born to Leah and Samuel Laverne Gibbon in Rewey, Wisconsin on November 1, 1936.
Stanley received his undergraduate degree from University of Wisconsin Platteville, he completed an M.D. and PhD in Pharmacology at University of Oklahoma and Medical College of Wisconsin.
He worked as a Pathologist for Mountain View Hospital for the nearly 30 years. He also provided services for Timpanogos hospital since it opened. He took great joy in working with the hospital staff and his partners Dr. Blair McGirk and Dr. David Mehr.
Stanley was selfless in every respect; he loved his family, friends, and his Lord and Savior above all else. He was an extremely bright and humble person that never made anyone feel "less than". Stanley touched lives in profound ways everywhere he went. He was passionate about the culture and experience of Native American Christians and formed many deep and lasting relationships with members of many tribes.
Stanley was a faithful member of River of Life Christian Church, in Murray, Utah. He cherished a special friendship with Pastor Anton and Jean Black.
Stanley is survived by his wife of nearly 49 years Elaine; children Bryan (and Jennifer); Steven (and Anita); Laura (and Patrick) Horgan; grandchildren: Emily, Beth, Brendon, and Jonathan; brother Lowell (and Judie) Gibbon and sister in-law Luise ( and Richard) Beringer; as well as many cherished cousins, and friends.
The family extends much gratitude towards the physicians who treated Stanley throughout the past year, as well as the compassionate care he received through Summit Hospice.
A memorial service honoring Stanley's life will be held within the next month. In lieu of flowers please consider donating to American Indian College Fund
